My apologies for being absent for the last two Friday’s…. but back to our regularly scheduled program!
Today I was reading the local news in my area on Yahoo and came across the most interesting story of an ex-Wachovia employee who was able to embezzle almost $1.2 million over a span of 8 years into her account! My first initial thought was “WTF? How does that go undetected!!” But then I thought about it, when you put trust into someone and hold them at a high regard that person could possibly get away with murder! Some would probably disagree and say so not so with me. However, if you look back into your life’s museum has there ever been a time you got away with something whether in a relationship or even on the job? Most importantly if you had the chance to get away with something what would it be??
For me I have gotten away with a lot in all arenas of my life… In relationships, I have gotten away with not being held accountable for my negative actions or using my spoiled, bratty attitude to get what I want from my guy. In my career, I’ve taken office supplies for my own personal usage and I ain’t talking about the occasional ink pen. I have a whole stack of notebooks, sticky’s, box of pens, stapler, hole puncher… you get the idea. One thing I can honestly say is at the time I did these thing I never had a conscious I never thought what would happen if I was exposed!!! Have you have been in a predicament like that?But I’ve never truly thought about what I would attempt to do if I wouldn’t get caught. I know numero uno would be to not go into work every day, set it up some kinda way that I got a vacay or telecommuted so many times out of the week!! Maybe I would do what the ex-bank employee did and funnel money into an account. As I think more on this.. what would you do? Have you done gotten away with doing something??
